4 year old kills himself with a gun he found in grandmother's house.

RIP little kids, died a day apart for the same reason.

Lock up your guns, if you have children around your house.

Tragic results of negligence on the part of the gun owners. Prayers for the families of the children.

if there is even the remotest possibility of children, teenagers, or even visiting adults in your home, then all loaded firearms should be either securely holstered on your person, or locked up. Period. Quick-access safes are available for when things go bump in the night.

:iagree:
The safest place for my pistol is on my person. My M&P lives in its Safariland ALS. My wife's Walther PPS M2 is in its Nemesis in her pocket. Pistols not being worn are secured in a case or with a cylinder or cable lock.
